Though it’s been almost been four years since the attacks on Benghazi, true patriots have refused to forget what happened that day as a result of the ineffectual leadership out of D.C.
For a few long months Trey Gowdy attempted to spearhead an initiative where they would finally figure out what happened on that fateful day.
Due to is persistence we learned Hillary Clinton has kept a private email server to conduct state affairs on, a problem which continues to dog her still to this day.
We also learned how weapons were being funneled through the area and to militants in Syria.
But no matter how hard he tried Gowdy was unable to land any criminal convictions, much in part because of stonewalling by the Department of Defense and the State Department.
Now that the inquiry has lost a bit of its steam it’s lost its position in people’s minds as they’re attention has been turned to the presidential election.
However, a branch of the government hasn’t forgotten the inquiry…and that would be “management” at the Pentagon.
And right now they’re sick and tired of Gowdy’s tenacious pursuit of the truth. So much so they wrote him a letter telling him off for being so hell-bent on seeing justice served.
In a letter to the statesman from South Carolina the Pentagon said some pretty nasty things.
Yahoo News writes:
In an April 28 letter to Gowdy, Stephen C. Hedger, assistant secretary of defense for legislative affairs, expressed frustration with what he described as the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s potentially futile calls for witnesses and information. He also cited the inquiry’s “crescendo” of costly, duplicative and unnecessary requests, including a few based on claims made on Facebook or talk radio.
“This type of questioning poses the risk that your final report may be based on speculation rather than a fact-based analysis of what a military officer did do or could have done given his or her knowledge at the time of the attacks,” Hedger wrote.
In his letter to Carter, Gowdy said Hedger’s remarks could have been communicated personally to the committee or through all other channels. But, he said, “that would have denied your assistant secretary the chance at an overtly partisan letter, which was both drafted and leaked for said purposes.”
Of course Gowdy wasn’t going to sit there and ket their condescending attitudes towards the pursuit of justice derail him. In fact, he fired right back and what he said should endear every conservative to this man a bit more.
Gowdy said Carter’s department apparently has a “different definition of burden” depending on who is investigating the department — itself or Congress. He said Hedger’s letter cited unrealistic timelines set by the committee, which launched its inquiry in May 2014. Yet according to Gowdy, the department was able to complete an exhaustive review of the bombing of a civilian medical facility in Afghanistan within two months.
“All of this work was completed without the burdens of which the department now complains,” Gowdy wrote.
The Democrats and Republicans who are in power now are basically tired of being “jerked around” by Gowdy who is growin increasingly frustrated with their inability to help him get to the bottom of one of the most sordid and sorrowful tales in recent memory.
If they truly cared about justice being served there Gowdy would have no issues with them. However, they’re the ones who are standing in the way and are guilty of the miscarriage of justice…so Gowdy has every right to be upset with them.
